About Advocacy and Mobilization
Growing the modern day abolition movement and seeing people equipped to truly make a difference has been important to Love146 from its founding days. We believe that grassroots abolitionists are essential to ending trafficking—they can be engaged, equipped and organized to effect change. Through this work of mobilization, we’ve seen thousands come together, advocating for practical and specific changes that will be felt by those affected by trafficking and exploitation in their communities.
We know this kind of change doesn’t come from short-lived enthusiasm, so education is a central component to our action opportunities. For those journeying alongside us, Love146 has an Abolitionist Curriculum that allows individuals and groups to approach learning about the nuances of trafficking, to stand against trafficking, and to fuel the work of Love146. We also connect supporters to ways they can advocate for laws that protect and support vulnerable and exploited children. In addition to equipping individuals, groups we call Love146 Volunteer Teams are central tools of our mobilization and advocacy. Volunteer Teams are passionate volunteers meeting on campuses, in churches, and in cities across the U.S. and the globe to learn more about trafficking and take action together in their local communities.
Though our mobilization efforts, we are seeing people equipped to become high-impact abolitionists and advocates of change. Love146 believes that everyone can play an important role in ending trafficking and exploitation, and we’re connecting our supporters to meaningful opportunities to take action.
